Williams injured his left ankle at the end of last season and he experienced soreness while working out in the offseason.
Williams hurt the ankle during the last year's final game. He adjusted his offseason training to accommodate and rehab the injury but when the soreness continued it was discovered the injury was slightly more serious than anticipated.
